Game Day Chili

It’s Super Bowl week!! Not that I am at all excited about who is playing this year, but I will still watch and hope for a good game!

One of my favorite parts of watching football is the food. On most football Sunday’s, Anthony and I will make “game day food,” whether it be nachos, meatballs, Stromboli or chili!

Chili is hard to mess up, but I came up with a recipe that I absolutely love! It’s a family favorite for sure.

First, I brown 2 pounds of meat. I usually go with 1 pound of lean ground beef and 1 pound of ground turkey.

While the meat is cooking, I cut up the peppers and onions and sauté them until they are soft.

I also add some garlic and salt and pepper to the peppers and onions.

Then, I add the browned meat to the crockpot along with all the seasonings and the peppers and onions.

And last, I add all the tomato items and the beans to the crockpot and stir it all up. I use two cans of beans that are a mix of black, kidney and pinto beans.

Cook it on low for 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally and that’s it!

Top it with cheese, chips, avocado or sour cream and enjoy!
